It eventually led to gathering in many portable locations for over 10 years. In 2009, Pastor Derick transitioned from Youth Pastor to Lead Pastor. A permanent location became available in 2014 in Shepherdstown, WV, when a former church was looking for a Pastor. We went from averaging 250 people per week in 2014, to now over 1,500 per week with four experiences on the weekend.
We are in a season of growth and a move of God doing the miraculous in hearts and lives. People started driving to us over an hour away, so we knew we needed to make more room. In 2018, we purchased our second permanent location, a former Regal Cinemas building in Martinsburg, WV, establishing a multi-site. In addition, through online church, social media, podcasts and recording our first worship single, “Hallelujah (Praise Unto The King)”, the ministry of Crossroads is impacting not just people in our local area, but around the world.
2019 marked fifteen powerful years of XR, and the story is still unfolding. Our vision is that we exist to reach those who are close to us, but far from God.
